          Tidy up your entertainment system with this power kit that features a prewired design for easy installation. All the tools you need to conceal cables for a neat appearance are included. No Electrical termination required: Plug and Play.

          I have a 65 inch wall-mounted TV and couldn't stand the sight of the power chord dangling in the middle.
          Since NJ laws prohibit running the power chord thru the wall (at least that was what was told to me), I had to find alternate ways to hide the power chord. This kit does a great job of hiding the TV's chord.
          Home Depot's price when I purchased it was significantly cheaper than any other place (including Bestbuy).
          I confess that I am a lazy bum and distinctly uneasy when it comes to tinkering with stuff that involves a big replacement cost like my new TV, and my condo as a worst case example if I end up drilling holes in the wrong places. :D

          So, I paid $50 for my local BestBuy Geek Squad guys to install this. (They agreed to it because they had installed the TV and I had purchased the TV thru BB. They did a great job!)
          If you know where exactly to drill the holes - size is slightly bigger than a baseball - then I would recommend doing it yourself. The kit comes with tools to remove remove the portions in the wall and with long rods to help establish connection between the two ends.Read Less

          With the Belkin Conserve Smart 8-Outlet Auto-Off Surge Protector you can turn power off to components like DVD players and gaming consoles by use of your TV's remote control.

          Loved the way it can segregate the 'linked' components that need be switched off and the others that need not

          Though I haven't had any power surge or the equipment to determine if the product works well in stopping the surge, I am confident in relying on Belkin's name.
          I have the TV as my main component and the power-off of all the linked components (currently AVR, Blue-ray, cable-box) is a great feature. It take a second for the linked components to turn off their power. (I initially had my subwoofer also linked but was irritated with a thump that comes out everytime the power is turned off/on. So, I delinked it and have it on the slot that allows it constant power.)
          Love the product and would highly recommend it!
